The Leinster Rugby U18 Clubs team has been named to take on Connacht Rugby in the Inteprovincial series at UL today (KO 5pm).

Joe Carbery’s side will be hoping to build on an impressive 40-10 win over Munster in the first round last Saturday.

Aitzol King replaces Tadhg Finlay in the starting lineup, the one change from that defeat of Munster.

Their final game of the series, against Ulster Rugby, takes place on Sunday, 25 August.
